I’m a huge fan of narco shows, so when I found out USA Network was premiering a new TV show, “Queen of the South“, I was thrilled! I watched the pilot, and it’s unlike any show of its type that I’ve seen. A smartly written drama with high-intensity action and a love story threaded throughout, it has everything to be the next break out hit show this summer!
Teresa Mendoza is a woman who was forced to run and seek refuge in America after her boyfriend, a drug dealer, was unexpectedly murdered in Mexico. Along the way, she teams up with an unlikely person from her past to help bring down the leader of the same exact drug trafficking ring that has her on the run for her life.
My favorite shows have a strong female lead, and after getting hooked by the pilot episode, I know what I’ll be watching this summer! The First Season of Queen of the South premieres on USA Network on Thursday, June 23rd at 10/9C, and stars Alice Braga from “I Am Legend” as Teresa. The original new TV show drama series is based on the global best-selling novel “La Reina Del Sur,” by internationally-acclaimed author Arturo Pérez-Reverte. Here is a YouTube trailer:
Queen of the South also stars Veronica Falcón (“Besos de Azúcar”) as Camila Vargas, Justina Machado (“Six Feet Under”) as Brenda Parra, Peter Gadiot (“Tut”) as James Valdez, Hemky Madera (“Weeds”) as Pote Galvez and Gerardo Taracena (“Apocalypto”) as Cesar “Batman” Guemes. Guest stars include Joaquim de Almeida (“Our Brand is Crisis”), Jon Ecker (“Narcos”) and James Martinez (“Breaking Bad”).
It’s smart, fast-paced, chilling, suspenseful, and a total nail-biter! I don’t know yet what the rest of the season of Queen of the South holds, but it’s already a nail biter so I’m making it a date night for myself, a way to relax alone and unwind after a long day. Teresa can get my mind off my own problems!
I wanted to share some of my thoughts in my own video (along with how I’m enjoying watching), so check that out here …
